    On starting up my PC I am unable to get past the initial BIOS readout it gets as far as 'Mouse Initialized' and then freezes. Pressing F8 does not work nor following the displayed message 'Press F2 to enter SETUP' any suggestions please.

    It occurred after a power failure. i have removed the laptop battery and run it from the mains supply but still have the problem. Although the CD drive and floppy drive are recognised in the BIOS readout I can not boot from an XP startup disk or CD.
